The beautiful Paris Cemetery in Bourbon County, Kentucky, holds the final remains of many early citizens who made their way to Kentucky shortly after it became a state. Today I want to share with you information about the Lyle family.
Joel Reid Lyle was born in Augusta County, Virginia, December 19, 1779, the son of John Lyle and Florence Reid. He died January 18, 1849, in Bourbon County, Kentucky.
Agnes M. Kenney, wife of Joel R. Lyle, was born January 22, 1783, and died September 18, 1849. Agnes and Joel were married March 31, 1807, in Fayette County, Kentucky.
Rev. John Lyle, born October 20, 1769, died July 22, 1825, was a brother of Joel Lyle, and came with him to Kentucky in 1801.
William C. Lyle, son of Joel R. and Agnes M. Lyle, was born August 16, 1808, and died January 25, 1874. William C. Lyle and Margaret Ann Caldwell were married on Tuesday, the 25th of October, 1831, by Rev. E. Smith.
Margaret Ann Caldwell, wife of William C. Lyle, was born April 25, 1809, and died October 4, 1839. Buried near her is their daughter, Ann Agnes, born August 28, 1833, and died January 18, 1836.
After Margaret’s death in 1839, William Lyle married Sarah Ellen Bell, October 11, 1842.
Sarah E. Bell, wife of William C. Lyle, born February 6, 1821, died July 23, 1873.
Elizabeth M. Lyle, born August 7, 1837, died June 13, 1901. Since Elizabeth is buried between Margaret Ann and William C. Lyle, I believe she must be their daughter.
William C. Lyle, born April 12, 1852, died July 24, 1880. This must be the son of William Lyle and his second wife Sarah E. Bell.
John Lyle, M.D., born March 5, 1817, died May 22, 1865. John Lyle was a younger brother of William C. Lyle.
Annie Lyle, daughter of Dr. John and Elizabeth Lyle, born January 24, 1864, died August 26, 1953. John Lyle and Elizabeth Garrard were married June 7, 1855.
Tomorrow I will have Bible records for the Lyle family!
